Leandra Medine AKA The Man Repeller

I've gushed on StyleBistro about my forever style crush Leandra Medine—AKA The Man Repeller. Not only is her style fearlessly unique, she's an incredibly witty and hilarious writer. Everything she wears and says is inspiring and powerful to me. In fact, her recent post explaining why she doesn't wear makeup, made me teary...and want to applaud in my computer chair.

"Man Repelling is an attitude. It is a state of existence. It is not whether you do your hair or curl your lashes, or even what you wear. It is how you approach doing those things. Why you do those things, and perhaps most importantly, it is a love letter to individuality.

I don’t hate what I see when I look in the mirror. Even if legions of others don’t agree. I have accepted the reflection that reliably bounces back at me for its perks and its flaws."

So here is a little illustration of an outfit she wore to NYFW in her honor.
